About Me


I am sailing around the world caring for people's yachts but occasionally I get home to take care of my place on an island. So much sea so little time. I'll be in Norway for a bit and then tour Scandinavia and the shipyards of Europe then Med regattas.


I work hard/ play hard and enjoy the people and places I am with. Humour is high on the list. When it is time to cut loose I like to do some cycling and generally get some exercise. At night I like to watch live music and maybe have a few. But it is business before pleasure for me.


Never leave the boat. Look out for one another. Maintain the high ground.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to get together and find out what others are doing and if they are in my home I like to tour the town and hit the beaches around the island. Long lunches and dinners are time well spent.


I met a few people in Antigua who were pilots and all sorts of things. Turns out we all have very extraordinary lives on the go.

Music, Movies, and Books

I need music but I am sick of all the recycled remixed rubbish. Sometimes I listen to some obscure Stones but little other old music. Gomez is great, DJ Champion too. I am all ears. I usually read non-fiction and biographies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I keep running into friends by chance while travelling. I did 2 150m bungee jumps back to back...It is all pretty amazing to me.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you can teach me music I can teach you seafaring. We might even catch a few fish or two, too.
